2012 Blue Jays Promotional Schedule Released

Rejoyce, Blue Jays fans! The team has come out with their 2012 Promotional Schedule.

There are lots of great giveaways this season, including three .. yes, three bobblehead giveaway days. Brandon Morrow, Ricky Romero and Yunel Escobar will all be available in bobblehead form.

The best part is that the giveaways have increased from the first 10,000 fans to the first 20,000 fans. That’s twice the amount of bobbleheads, which is great news because the giveaways seemed to go especially fast last season.

Here are a few other noteabale giveaway days:

April 9: Honda Home Opener, Rally Towel Giveaway

May 20: Brandon Morrow Bobblehead Giveaway

June 3: Yunel Escobar Bobblehead Giveaway

June 13: 2012 Team Card Set Giveaway

June 17: Father’s Day, Blue Jays Batting Helmet Giveaway

August 12: Blue Jays Cap Giveaway

August 19: Ricky Romero Giveaway

September 30: Fan Appreciation T-Shirt Giveaway

Also making a return at the Home Opener is the Rally Towel giveaway. While I’m sure it looks great on television to have 47,000+ fans waving their towels in unison, it creates a problem of folks throwing them onto the field.

Hopefully the Blue Jays either beef up the security for this year, or they only limit the rally towels to the folks on the lower deck.

Flashback Friday: Brandon Morrow’s One-Hitter

The Toronto Blue Jays have a long-standing history of pitchers who have come so incredibly close to throwing a no-hitter. Of course, there’s Dave Stieb who was just one strike away in back-to-back starts.

There’s Roy Halladay who was one strike away from a perfect game in his second big league start. And then there was Dustin McGowan who also flirted with a no-hitter when he was just two outs away in 2007.

Brandon Morrow added himself to that lengthy list of near no-hitters by a Blue Jay, but there’s nothing to be ashamed of for that. For this week’s Flashback Friday, we take a look back at Brandon Morrow’s one-hitter against the Tampa Bay Rays on August 8th, 2010.
